River Bend Park includes parking, restrooms, a playground, a kayak loading/unloading area, a kayak launch, and access to the Neuse River Greenway.
The 25-acre park has playgrounds with a rubberized safety surface designed for children ages 2-5 years old and 5-12 years old that feature a multi-direction swing, slides, and a climbing boulder.
River Bend Park is one of several launch sites on the Neuse River for small non-motorized crafts, including canoes and kayaks. The park provides general parking and kayak or canoe trailer parking, as well as a designated unloading/loading area near the launch.
The Neuse River Greenway trail runs through River Bend Park.
